Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

As self-driving cars move from fantasy to reality, what kind of effect will they have on cities?

A research and urban prototyping project called Shuffle City investigates, and in the process, becomes a manifesto for a new kind of modern city--one that depends less on traditional public transportation like buses or light rail and more on creating a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles to serve urban mobility needs.

Shuffle City looks at the new possibilities that could arise from cities transitioning to cars without drivers. If cars were put into some constant flow as a public good, and if people didn’t all have their own vehicles, there would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless towers that serve as a parking infrastructure in the urban landscapes of car-centric cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles (Under the current ownership model, the average car spends 21 hours per day parked.)

The share of city space ruled by parking lots will shrink, making way for more green space, environmental buffers, workspace, housing, retail, and denser planning for more walkable cities...

Alain Coetmeur's insight:

Looks like the future of Jed Rothwell in "Cold fusion and the future" booklet.

Just add a LENR reactor as powersource, and less troubles with fuel.

Interface between cars and homes is an interesting area of R&D. Everything from entertainment synchronising to battery management.

Jacque Fresco has been talking about this sort of thing for awhile now, looks like its coming closer to reality~

How China hopes to solve nuclear waste issue with hybrid fusion-fission reactor at top secret facility

How China hopes to solve nuclear waste issue with hybrid fusion-fission reactor at top secret facility | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

Nuclear waste remediation will be China will build a new hybrid reactor that can burn nuclear waste via a combined fusion-fission method by 2030....

Alain Coetmeur's insight:

Nuclear waste remediation will be the key problem when LENR will spread.

LENR may solve it with LENR transmutations as the Japanese, Ukrainian and Russians try to do, but classic nuclear energy may be required if it does not work.

 

fast neutron reactors like what Areve prepared (son of Super Phoenix) may be a classical solution, but fusion, and it's massive production of neutrons, even if the energy of fusion is not useful, may be a good tool.

Paul K. Feyerabend, 70, Anti-Science Philosopher - NyT bash Feyerabend realism proven by LENR

Paul K. Feyerabend, 70, Anti-Science Philosopher - NyT bash Feyerabend realism proven by LENR | Useful technology around LENR Cold Fusion | Scoop.it

Dr. Feyerabend held that the rationality of science did not really exist and that the special status and prestige of scientists are based on their own claims to objective truth. He once said that "conceited and intimidating scholars, covered with honorary degrees and university chairs," can be tripped up by a lawyer able to look through the jargon and expose the ignorance behind dazzling displays of omniscience.

"Scientists have more money, more authority, more sex appeal than they deserve," Dr. Feyerabend said in a 1979 article in Science magazine, "and the most stupid procedures and the most laughable results are surrounded with an aura of excellence. It is time to cut them down to size."

 
Prof. Paul Karl Feyerabend, a gadfly philosopher of science who asserted that scientists have no particular claims on truth, died on Feb. 11 in Geneva. He was 70. He died of a brain tumor, said officials at the University of California at Berkeley, where he taught from 1959 until he reached emeritus status in 1990. He held a concurrent appointment at the Polytechnic Institute of Zurich.
Alain Coetmeur's insight:

It is so funny to see NyT gang bash Feyerabend for telling the truth, after having ruined Cold Fusion future for decades with fake data, bad reasoning, evidence reinterpretation, presented as good science practice.

 

This article itself, taken in perspective with Cold Fusion, is supporting Feyerabend, Thomas Kuhn, and Roland Benabou groupthink theory.
